, this was very important for us to stay in positive risk environment. >> hans, we're seeing the response to the upside now. second highs, 1.32. are you sticking by your thoughts that it is still heading towards 1.30? >> we have to make it clear that in the next quarter or two the euro has upside potential and not downside potential. then the longer prospect for the euro is still very swb very negative. why is this euro overshoot taking place? it has a lot to do with the increasing negative correlation with the yen. so the euro is the anti-yen. that implies that when we were seeing the yen coming under selling pressure, japanese investors, where are they currently investing? investors are investing in fixed income. in many cases, very little yields left so that actually means the peripheral of europe sticks out. you need to have some preconditions. the most important, the yen has to stay weak, but secondly we should not run into any politically motivated problem with the euro. that would be a killer for that type of trade. >> and on that note, the european commission today is due to relea

as a u.s. senator from massachusetts. mr. president, i am proud to join my colleagues today in support of the violence against women act of 2013. i do so not just as a senator but as a mother of two daughters. this critical legislation has been held up for far too long, and it's past time for reauthorization. we have a serious responsibility to ensure that women and families are protected. the rates of violence and abuse in our country are astounding and totally unacceptable. according to a 2010c.d.c. study, domestic violence affects more than 12 million people each year. across the united states, 15 1/2 million children lives in homes in which domestic violence has occurred. and in my home state of north carolina alone, 73 women and children are killed on average every year because of domestic violence. let me say that number one more time. 73 women and children are killed every year due to domestic violence. these are alarming statistics, and we must act now to address them. since 1994, vawa programs, and in particular the stop program, that provides grants for services, training, of

this carney testimony? joining us is sophie wynn. how much expectation is built into the pound ahead of this? the expectation is he's going to come in and be fairly dovish. it's a risk that he isn't and, therefore, the pound strengthens. >> we think that the market may be disappointed with the announcement. we don't think we are going to hear anything radical on this statement by the upcoming governor. >> why? >> well, basically, i think, you know, the expectations are that the ecb is going to go for a nominal gdp target at least for some time. and we think the risks are too much for them to -- for the government to pursue these sort of bodies. he will entertain -- before going for this. >> the bank of england will be under some pressure. currencies don't act in a vacuum. so as we see other potential moves to weakening currencies around the globe, we're at 1.5668. where might this pair be headed, then, if you're not expecting carney to come in and immediately talk or wind up having effective currency lower? >> we think the guarantee should weaken readily. we don't think the currency will be,

regulations under heller, in my view, also covers bands and weapons designed for assault or military use, rather than for lawful civilian use. and the court did not nearly say that such regulations would ultimately survive second amendment scrutiny. it said that heller would not even quote cast its shadow of doubt on such measures should they be considered in the future. now we should have no illusions that adopted measures like these nationally will completely solve the epidemic of gun violence in america. more will be needed to we clearly need to address metal health issues as well as other potential contributors to gun violence such as violent video games, films that glorify murder and mayhem, and other aspects of our violent culture. but if we do nothing until we can do everything, we will all have the blood of innocent human beings on our hands, and we will besmirch the constitution in the process. just in closing let me say that our constitution, as many have wisely observed, does not make the perfect enemy of the good, and whatever else it is, it is not a suicide pact. a suicide p

to use that as a bargaining chip again. we saw how damaging bringing into question the credit worthyness of the government. the fight should not be should we pay the bill? >> there is an interesting question about in retrospect if republicans leveraging the debt limit to get a bill that cut spending by $1 to $2 trillion going forward whether that was worth it? they introduced liquidity risk. if you don't cut spending we're not going to vote for a debt limit increase. it worked. the president agreed to cut the spending by a significant amount. now, would you like that negotiation had resulted from not having made that threat? absolutely. but do you think it would have occurred? there's the difference. i would never be one to advocate that congress should not increase the debt limit. they should. when this came up in the summer of 2011 i wrote that and they put that in the pages of "the initial review." i was arguing against those who say let's look and creating a cash crunch. that is the wrong thing to do. congress has the ability to decide what they want to attach to the legislation. tha
